Summer fun

Happy guy!

Fourth of July and Jacob's Bday weekend:

Finding treasures in the woods!



Joseph's "words": (in the order he started using them)
  • Hi
  • Uhoh
  • Dada
  • Beep
  • Out
  • Up
  • Ball
  • Bye
  • No
  • Boom
  • Yeah
  • Weee
  • Book?
  • Mama?
  • Apple (Yay. First real two syllable word!)

Doesn't look to impressive; but it's a start!

Animals seen around the house:
  • Rabbits
  • Fox
  • Bobcat (and/or lynx--not quite sure)
  • Cat
  • Chickens
  • Dogs
  • Goat (escapee who walked a long way over the hill behind our house. We came home and she was just standing in our yard. She was great fun for the few hours she was hear. She would follow Brad everywhere.)
  • Deer
  • Emmus! Yes, earlier this week I looked out the window to see to HUGE (over 6 feet I would say) scary looking birds walking across the long. I was kind of tired so the first thing I thought was that some Alice in Wonderland type magic had enlarged the chickens. Now I believe they were emmus escaped from a local farm.

Sophia Joy

CONGRATULATIONS to Jenn and Travis Williams on their baby girl, Sophia Joy Williams, born this morning. Everyone is doing great and the one picture I've seen is beautiful. Can't wait to see more and to meet her myself in a month.

I can't believe that Jenn and I--best friends since we were 4--are now both mommies! I love that we get to experience this crazyness together!

Welcome to the world Sophia!
